For God so loved the world, that He
gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not
perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son
into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be
saved through Him. John 3:16-17
is the inspired Word of God.
Heaven is a free gift. It cannot be earned or deserved.
All people are sinners and cannot save themselves.
God is merciful (He loves us and does not want to punish
us) but He is also just (He must punish sin). Sin is any
failure to obey the Law (The Ten Commandments).
Jesus Christ is both the Son of God (Fathered by the Holy Spirit) and Son of man (born of the Virgin Mary)
Jesus, being both God and man, paid for our sins by dying on the cross for us. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day.
Faith (trusting) in Jesus Christ alone for our salvation is the only way to heaven.
The purpose of our life is to glorify God. The good
things we do are done in thankfulness for what God has
done for us (We are not earning our way into heaven).
